Quikrete, Pavestone, Custom Building Products on premiere of new Fox TV show

Quikrete, Pavestone and Custom Building Products team up on Home Free, FOX’s new unscripted competition series featuring couples vying to win their dream home. The show premiered Wednesday, July 22 at 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. Eastern Time. The show is hosted by famed professional contractor Mike Holmes (“Holmes on Homes”) and features nine deserving couples in challenges to revive one run-down home every week using a variety of products including those from Quikrete, Pavestone and Custom Building Products. Viewers are encouraged to visit www.quikrete.com/homefree/ for details on how to win a $50 gift card by identifying the products that appear on each episode.

During each episode Holmes will present the couples with tasks designed to test and challenge the skills of these do-it-yourself enthusiasts. Holmes will be with the competitors every step of the way – picking apart their work and demanding they meet his high standards, while also sharing his expertise and guidance to help them reach new heights. When the work is done for the day, the couples don’t have far to travel to get home . . . because not only must they work together to restore the home, they must all live together in the same dilapidated work site 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The more they accomplish, the better they sleep at night. Each week, the couples with the best work will move forward in the competition, while the couple who didn’t perform up to code will face elimination. In a major twist, just when the eliminated couple thinks they have lost it all, they learn that they have actually won – a new home!
